Easter egg hunt a success
The Leatherstocking Credit Union and Hyde Hall Historic site co-sponsored the annual Easter Egg Hunt. We would like to thank those who have made this event a yearly tradition for literally thousands of children over the years.
The event takes many hours of preparation before and during the event itself. We would like to acknowledge and thank the staff, board members and volunteers of both the Leatherstocking Credit Union and Hyde Hall for the countless ways they contributed to the success of the event; to Mohican Flowers for donating the helium tank; to the Springfield First Responders; to Phyllis and Greg Lippitt who generously give their time for this and other CU events; to the area schools for getting the message out to their students; and of course a huge thanks to the Easter Bunny for making time in his busy holiday schedule to stop in at Hyde Hall to entertain the children and pose for pictures.
We were thankful for the beautiful weather on Saturday, March 30 contributing to perhaps the largest turn out in our 10-year history. More than 500 people attended, including almost 300 children who gathered literally thousands of brightly colored eggs in anticipation of receiving their candy-goodie bags and balloons.
It was truly heartwarming to see.
